in our privacy series. we are looking at privacy issues and telecommunications policy. joining us from mount view, california, is yahoo!'s cheap of privacy, anne toth. also with us, juliana grunewald. thank you for being with us from california. what is your job at yahoo!? >> i am the vice president of global policy and the head of privacy at yahoo! that means i work with product teams, marketing, customer care, a work throughout the organization to make sure our policies and privacy promises are embedded throughout policies and products. >> this is what you had to say about yahoo!'s privacy policy. >> is this a new policy that yahoo! has developed, and is it one of the more stringent ones in your world? >> our policies have been in evolution over time. i think our thinking about privacy from the beginning. i have been a guy who for 12 years and i have worked with product people to make sure that privacy is reflected through our products services. that is absolutely nothing new. the way we have been thinking about privacy lately has been about how to contextualize privacy so that it ha
america, and they made the ultimate sacrifice for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and all the infrastructure that was here. beca
to recovery. today we'll be talking about maintaining resiliency and sustaining recovery. joining us in our panel today are pamela s. hyde, administrator, substance abuse and mental health services administration, u.s. department of health and human services, rockville, maryland; dr. a. thomas mclennan, deputy director, white house office of national drug control policy, washington, d.c.; dr. alexandre laudet, addiction and recovery scientist, new york, new york; james smallwood, founder and ceo, the choice is yours, inc., camden, new jersey. pam, how many people in the united states are in recovery? well, the estimates are about 20 million people are in recovery, working on being free of drugs and other-and alcohol. and, alexandre, what is recovery? what are some of the common paths to recovery? well, that's really two different questions. what recovery is, according to people in recovery themselves, is usually, especially for people severely addicted, it is abstinence from drugs and alcohol, as well as significantly-significant improvements in other aspects that constitute quality of life
. they should get a new principle use, self service restaurant and wine shop. and something very unique open space in an enclosed area where people can get together. that, to me, is very practical. we are in the year 2010. they are running out of money. there is no more cushion. they put $2.1 million into a building which i thank you for, prior to that it was a complete eye sore. and it is probably never going to come back to us. but we can solve a problem. instead of create new ones or make new ones. what we can do today is move a step in the direction to take a new use, self service restaurant, wine shop in the open space. what i like about the open space is a lot of non-profits right now are drying up and they need venues and space. this is a perfect space. recently an event there was and over 100 people showed up. it was a wonderful event. the city needs to look at adjustments of models, more practical uses during this economic recovery. we are probably going to be in this for about five more years at the least. i don't see any light switch. they own the building. let's grant them the ne
the proposed restaurant does not comply with condition 36 under those uses that were stated and would currently not be permitted. want to say i received correspondence today from commissioner miguel. i believe property managers are here to answer questions. they believe it is necessary or desirable for the following reasons. in 1989 a limit on types of foods that were place on the projects to address the concern of neighborhoods over mcdonalds possibly locating in the shopping center. since that time the department developed more effective code regulations that address this concern eliminating the need to regulate food uses in the manner done in condition 36. project would allow greater flexibility to augment the types of restaurant and restaurant tenants in the shopping center to meet the consumers ever-changing tastes. it would replace a formula retail use with another not altering the balance. this concludes my presentation. >> thank you. project sponsor. >> i represent lakeshore plaza. we have a short presentation. we will be able to fit it within the 15 minutes. courtney jones is with cros
with a mixed use development, which would be a unique public-private partnership. it would be a tremendous opportunity to expand mosconi and improve the neighborhood. it would improve the entrance to the neighborhood on third street. right now, stoney is a very unattractive entry into san francisco -- mosconi is a very unattractive entry into san francisco. the other would be the north-sow 3 configuration, which would require excavating under howard street, which would have done when we first built mosconi south. it would have only cost $3 million. connect north and south and make it one large exhibit space. that would provide the total exhibition space between 500,000 square feet and 600,000 square feet. that sounds big but that only puts us in competition with a city like san diego. you have hotels in las vegas that have 1 million square feet of exhibition space. even with both of these projects. -- even with both of these projects, we are still small. these things could not only help to continue the revitalization of neighborhoods -- and those of you who remember this neighborhood 30 ye
>> good afternoon. we are very forge to have with -- "fortune" to vo with us some guests who are going to speaking to us about balconies and problems and what maintenance issues you should be paying to. we have dave from lynnagain, associates from what you normally would call a termite inspector. it's actually a structural pest control company. is that right? >> that's right. >> we'll talk more about what license pest control folks do and why it's so important to know them and to know dave. and a structural engineer who looks at lots of decks and balconies and tries to figure out ways to fix and solve problems. and sometimes looks at the reasons that problems occur and called in to do the forensic investigation of that failure as well. and of course, harvey is here with pat. thanks for joining us, harvey. and i'm chief building inspect, lawrence cornfield. we have a bunch of slides we're going to go through today that i hope will give us sort of a basis to ask questions and focus our discussion. most of the decks that we see that we're going to talk about are made of wood. sa
is as we look at these in-kind arrangements, when we look at the use of in leiu fees or improvements within a neighborhood, we all have mistaken that and that is good that it comes before the planning commission and even though the cac may be neighborhood and happen citywide and people moving into an area perhaps might have certain thing they are interested in and certainly becomes a more attractive area if the in-kind aproouchlts address the whole population of congressman, not just the population that lives in an area and it is important this be vetted as broadly as possible so that would be my feeling on it and we'll see what the other commissioners would say. i wouldn't mind a continuance for overs to have an -- to weigh in on it. >> i think the public park is a good example of the public opinion and to propose to do a public park and what we're talking about now is whether it pays for through the fees and the city built it or whether the developer built it and pay the feeses and there is a difference process about the department does and there are pub hick hearings by d.p.w. or m.t.a.
, "this is a special power of the commission to be used only when there are exceptional and extraordinary circumstances associated with a proposed project. this is sensitive and must be exercised with the utmost restraint." i hope that this body takes the constraint necessary and it does feel that this is a proper forum to make that decision. i would urge you to move forward with this project. thank you. >> is there further public comment? if not, public comment disclosed. >> the one that actually requested the continuance because i requested information a staff that i never received. usually when a commission requests something and this is not received in time to consider the information before a hearing, then we ask for a continuance. this is not for any other reasons. i am continuing this because i did not receive certain information that was requested. when i receive that information and certain things are terrified or clarified to me, then i think that i should have that. october 14th and i will be ready to hear whether there is four of us or six of us. also, -- it is that simple. if
commission has the authority and the cac's are advisory to us on that and you made that clear, but that these things should be vetted citywide and that the coalition of san francisco neighborhoods made a good point and this is a citywide policy and i would be supportive of a continuance because it's important to get the input, too, because these are being applied to specific areas that would be applied citywide as new areas come up. >> by definition the in lieu concept can only apply where there are impact fees because they are replacing an impact fee. and impact fees are only in play in certain areas that have plans themselves. and impact areas have to go through a whole process and be applied to the board to have impact fee. >> some of these are somewhat overlapping and eastern neighborhood is a large area that may have neighborhood organizations that are part of that area. and the same could be true perhaps to a lesser degree of market octavia and that is one concern and the other thing is as we look at these in-kind arrangements, when we look at the use of in leiu fees or
to include? >> i do not recall anything. >> maybe you can go through and let us know if there is anything else that should not be unfair. -- should not be in there. >> what is before us is one additional pet food express. if we were to reject this and allow it to go forward, what if two more came before us. is there any point the planning department would have a concern that it would be predatory, or is that not how the department looks at these things? i came in when we had the appeal on toyota and starbucks thinking i was going to go in one direction, and when i heard the testimony of the neighborhood, i could not support for melo retail, so what is more interesting is to understand -- support formula retail, so what is more important is to understand, if you want to come up with another one, you need to go to the southeast part of the city. is there any guidance we are going to get, or are we honor anna -- on our own for this one? >> i think the issue is the basis by which we do our analysis. the reason most are in conditional uses is we look at them on a case by case basis. we look at
growth and convincing us that we need more products. these are also in the most toxic categories and increasingly marketed to younger and younger girls. this is an example of a 5 or 7 year old on the cover of a skin, hair relaxer. these are ratings, that is the most toxic hair relaxers and no. 1 is a kid's product. then for hair dye, younger and younger girls are getting hair dye. "new york times", girls 10 and 11 are getting their hair dyed into the salon. it used to be 15 or 16. the industry was excited. this represent as growth market for the industries. it also represents age and continued chemical exposures to many of these toxins for young girls and more exposures to the environment as hair dyes get into the waterway and food even if we don't get our hair dyed. our skin should be lighter and darkers, smoother, lips plumper, these companies have so much power over our minds, public space and sense of self as they continue to expose us to chemicals even though safer alternatives are available. we have the power. we have the power to decide which products we put on our body an
permitted use, that there's a chance it will be turned down. so that said, i always believe it's best to have your neighbors on your side, the police on your side, and we're going to go back out and try to do a little bit more legwork on this. so my client is here to answer any questions. i know the police would like to weigh in on some things. >> does anybody have any questions of the applicants? >> go ahead. >> mr. renni, so let me try to get this straight. you were coming before us only to request the extended hours permit. >> correct. >> you were holding back on the place of entertainment permit because of the neighborhood notification requirement, is that correct? >> there is a 312 and we've ordered up 3 un-foot lift but we did have a long meeting with the captain and permit officer about a week and a half ago, there was an initial deal, or an agreement cut which would allow after hours but only for one hour, only with specific security standards and -- >> if i could stop you here, please. i don't want to get into the police portion of this, this is a planning issue again. neighb
beats of liberty. the difference between us and the shadows of fear is we have a lot more space to breathe. yet the smell of equality is found outside and sexuality is the right to physical expression between consenting adults. we can live outside of the closets but not out of the house. they are not welcome in the open fields of america. where others dream of marriage or defend our country. because not all of god's children were worthy to see the light beyond these cold, white walls. as long as we remain indoors. sometimes visit our souls. taking the time to join us, unable to come out and play. in only we could run and discover land starving for diversity. the emptiness and our perversions and sins as preached from religion pens, it touch the openings of children child faint sounds emerge from under closet doors. there are too many of us in this house located on a land far a war from normal chanting. we only want to be outside. we only want to be outside. the lord is outside. it's not wonder some would rather die moths in the closet while others are not free. and this is a new
are in the neighborhood schools, it can save us the energy for the school bus coming so much more. it benefits the san francisco citizenship. we do not need to pay more tax to support the school bus. i had personal issues effective in march and april. my eldest son got accepted into a school. the time to drop him off, my youngest son has to show up at the other school, which is far away. many times, this happens to parents in the school district. we have to save more money in our personal budget so we can let our children go on for higher learning. being parents, we are upset with that. commissioner wynns: we have five minutes left. >> my name is randy wong. i represent an elementary school bilingual program. after fourth grade, our parents have an -- our students have no more bilingual tests. most of our kids decide to change middle schools. i represent the parents' petition. we are against our kids go into a middle school without an immersion program or bilingual program. thank you. >> good evening. i wanted to start by thanking the district for the good faith with which they have listened to parent
planning and land use applications if proposed ordinance would provide for documents of 10 pages or longer and all city departments and city officials should primarily do them by e-document and i'll go over that in a little bit in more detail. this ordinance was sponsored by the supervisor and i would like to introduce his aid to talk about the origin of the ordinance. >> thank annmarie and president miguel and commissioners, on behalf of the commissioner, that was 30 seconds going through my office today on my way here today on planning commission documentation that we dutifully read every page. what the impetus to this particular piece of legislation was is we don't need all the paper. we are happy to receive them electronically and is preferable to receive documentation electronically as it is far easier to search in case we need to review a specific division of the planning document and e.i.r. and a c.u. or whatever it that might come to us. what gave rise to it is the last straw was when we got the, i think, three boxes worth of documentation on the market octavia area plan. and at th

to deal, even with current law, one is to make sure that we can use our accountability law and our anti-dumping law, and our import safety laws to make sure they are protected from both on fair trade practices and surges from china in imports. we are losing -- we are using those laws very effectively. we have a right, under the wto, secondly, to make sure that when china is doing something else in china that limits our excess or unfairly discriminates, we can take them to the wto and get them to stop those practices. we're using the very effectively. we have a long way to go. we are having an portent debate , region and partisan debate, not about the object -- and the important debate, not about the objective, but what additional sets of tools we can use. many of these practices have more adverse effects on other trading partners. we will try to use all those tools, and work with you and your colleagues to see if we can find better approaches. >> i appreciate your answers, and i encourage you to look at the currency reform for their trade act. with that, i will yield to the chairman. >>
